What makes the European airport market very special? To get a better understanding we asked ADB SAFEGATE´s Regional Sales Director Europe, Regardt Willer. In this interview Regardt explains about the biggest challenges and also about solutions to help mitigate the effects. Because of geographical constraints, European airports do not always have the freedom of expanding by means of geographical expansion. Instead airports often need to optimize operations. ADB SAFEGATE’s contribution is predominantly based around providing the airport with the tools to aid decision-making and other tools to speed up the processes at the airport.
India’s aviation sector has a lot going for it – favorable demographics, a rising middle class population, high disposable incomes, and rapid economic growth. In 2017, with 117 million domestic passengers and 17.31 percent year-on-year growth, India was ranked the world’s fastest growing domestic travel market. The country is expected to become the world’s third largest aviation market by 2026 and the largest by 2030.
MALMOE, SWEDEN. Global institutes are expecting a very large passenger growth for both airports and airlines, and many believe that the volume will double over the next fifteen years. This growth is a challenge, especially in Europe, where many airports have already reached or stretched their capacity constraints with increasing air traffic, which means more start-up and landing times in the daily lives of airports, airlines and their many involved actors. Is there a contradiction between airports and airlines in terms of investment at the airport from both the commercial (Landside) and operational (Airside) perspectives?
A Giant is rising at Daxing. The new airport in Beijing is planned for completion in May 2019 and will start trial operations late that year, according to China Daily. Olivier Berger, CEO of ADP INGENIERIE, subsidiary of the GROUPE ADP, discussed key challenges and design consideration of this giant project with Martin Lamprecht of Momberger Airport Information.
Did you know that international passenger traffic in Latin America grew at a higher rate than the world’s average last year? When Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) in São Paulo hosted an ICAO A-CDM Implementation Workshop and Seminar, ADB SAFEGATE’s A-CDM expert, Stephen O’Flynn was there to present on the subject key to deal with growth, performance matters and potential capacity constraints.
In an increasingly globalized world, international interconnectivity is key and a given for any thriving or expanding society. A well operating airport hub with supporting connecting commuter airports is essential to support the economy of a large metro or a large part of a country. With leisure and business air travel on the rise, airports are facing multiple congestion challenges that need to be managed both in the short and long term. In many cases, airport operators are running out of options resulting in overloaded infrastructure.
On the occasion of the 2016 ACI-NA/World Annual Conference/World Annual General Assembly in Montreal and the organization’s 25th anniversary, Martin Lamprecht, Publisher & Managing Editor and also our guest blogger from Momberger Airport Information interviews Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World about Customer Service, Sustainability, Safety, Regulation and Cooperation.
UK. Leeds Bradford Airport, which serves 3.5 million passengers per year, has upgraded its Air Traffic Control systems to support its ambitious draft Masterplan proposals to deliver 7.1 million passengers annually by 2030. The Airport boosts air traffic capacity with advanced Air Traffic Control technology from ADB Safegate.
With China’s aviation industry growing rapidly, the potential impact on the environment is also increasing. While the boom brings challenges such as congestion, delays and pollution, it also comes with an opportunity for China to take advantage of the most innovative technologies available, rather than simply trying to expand existing infrastructure.
Anticipating an increase in air traffic, Singapore’s Changi Airport, which currently operates with two runways, plans to add a third runway as part of the Changi East Development Project. The airport will install new airfield specialized systems including airfield lighting, surveillance and detection equipment for the third runway and ADB Safegate has been chosen to supply Changi Airport with the latest LED airfield lighting equipment for this purpose.
